The 'Black Swan' actress tries to emulate the style of raunchy comedy made famous by Judd Apatow in his hit 2007 movie 'Knocked Up'.


Hollywood star Natalie Portman wants to boost the profile of women in comedy by making funny films via her new production company Handsomecharlie Films. The "Star Wars" actress has set up the firm with her business partner Annette Savitch and they aim to emulate the style of raunchy comedy made famous by Judd Apatow in his hit 2007 movie "Knocked Up".

Describing the projects as "female comedies", Portman tells Vogue magazine, "Women... are generally not allowed to be beautiful and funny, and certainly not vulgar. "There's a difference between being in a bra and underpants as an object on a men's magazine cover and playing yourself - a woman with desires and needs who loves and laughs with her friends - in a bra and underpants."

Natalie Portman was recently nominated as Best Actress in Drama at the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards, thanks to her portrayal in "Black Swan".
